I Wanna Slip Back

I wanted to bloom
in the lap of green.
Intolerable it is to
stay as unseen!

I lift up my head
and cast my look.
I see the glum shade,
thru the mirror of brook.

No longer, I stay there,
where joys I lack.
To sleep, in the deep,
I wanna slip back.

    Beautiful poem Neela. Beautiful way you have compared nature to life.
    This poem left me wondered...
    Where I wanna slip back
    Is it to the lap of green earth, which is full of joy...
    or looking for joy thru the mirror of brook....Loved reading.. (Report) Reply

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
